Rolls? For Dinner? Tonight?

So I'm straightening up the kitchen a bit, when my 3 year old approaches me and says "Mommy, can you make rolls for dinner?" Rolls? You mean the homemade kind? Oh my. Sure, kid, there's 12 excrutiatingly LONG days until Christmas, and I've got absolutely NOTHING to do but sit here and count raindrops, so sure, let me spend half a day in the kitchen making you rolls. Of course, I didn't say that. What I said was something like: "Of course, baby, would you like to help Mommy make them?" I mean, c'mon, my kid (the one that never eats) asks for rolls, and I can't exactly pop open a can of Pillsbury Crescents. Although I have been known to do this a time or two! Okay, rolls, rolls. I guess I could get out the Bisquick - but didn't they have pancakes for breakfast? Oh well, in for a penny, in for pound. I'll let you know how the "Golden Corral Yeast Roll Copycats" turn out.....tune in later.

See...this is where I screw up. I never have ALL the ingredients to make anything. I am always missing something. If my husband, or one of my kids, ever actually 'requested' me to make something I would be on cloud nine. I love to cook - they just don't necessarily get anything out of eating. It is a sad combination... I would be completely content to spend a whole day in the kitchen slaving away over a wonderful meal for my family - they would be completely content with a can of Spaghettios not even warmed up. *sigh*
